  • September 6th, 11 pm! HARRI STOJKA A Tribute To Gypsy Swing at THE LIVING ROOM 154 Ludlow St. NYC 10002 212-533-7235 http://www.livingroomny.com/ HARRI STOJKA'S CD A TRIBUTE TO GYPSY SWING OUT NOW ON ZOHO MUSIC "Harri Stojka is a Roma Gypsy born in Vienna and raised with a guitar in his hands. His Tribute to Gypsy Guitar immediately brings to mind Django Reinhardt and his Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Stojka and his quartet, with guest violinist Eva Berky, do cover several tunes associated with Reinhardt, including "Avalon," "Nuages" and "Limehouse Blues." The album, however, is a valentine to a guitar style, not simply to Reinhardt. Among the many treats are an elegant version of Sidney Bechet's "Petite Fleur" and the delightful cover of Sammy Cahn's "Bei Mir Bist Du Scheen." Stojka is a fluent, agile guitarist with a flair for arranging and the sense to work with superb sidemen"--Philip Van Vleck, Billboard
